city one last time. he appears to be heading straight for castle gandolpho. as we said a seven to ten minute flight, a place where for hundreds of years we have seen popes go for their summer. but this will be the first couple of months of pope benedict's requirement. it is actually a space that is larger than vatican city itself. when you're on the ground, you see a facade and it doesn't look enormous. but it is a place that he has found particularly comforting in the summer. in fact there is a plaque in the town square and it quotes him from 2011 when he said here i found everything, mountains, a lake and i can even see the sea and good people. and ann, we are expecting some 8,000 people to be waiting for him at castle gandolpho? >> yes, he will be there, and he will make what we are told unscripted remarks and those will be the last remarks of his public life. i think that's one thing that benedict tried to make clear today is that this is the end of his public life. he is going to lead a different kind of life in a different kind of service to god. and he spoke yesterday when he g
it will help news arizona, in my city of phoenix a great deal. >> what do you see from your perspective? what are the key components to immigration reform? what has to be includeded? wroo we know it has to be done in a bipartisan way, but a city like mine where i have soon to be a majority latino city and i think that's a strategic advantage for a city like mine, our proximity to the border of mexico, it's a young latino population, a bilingual population, gives us some competitive economic advantages in trade with mexico, latin america, central america. we have to pass comprehensive immigration reform in a way where there is a path to citizenship. it's not an easy path. you have to go to the back of the line and pay a fine or make sure that taxes are appropriately paid. we know that border security has to be an element of it as well, and the dream act has to be a part of it. with so many young people doing the right thing, in college, being leaders of the future, entering the military, in phoenix that's our leaders of the future. we want to support those leaders, so the dream act is incredib
is the rain. new york city, a mixture of snow and rain. long island, now over to mostly rain. coastal areas of southern new england, it's going to be a battle. that's why your snow totals will be a lot less. the full-blown snowstorm begins from boston to the hartford area and definitely around prove d providence. that's when the storm will be the strongest. that's when we'll have the blizzard conditions, high tide cycle. very dangerous at 10:00 a.m. near boston. that's when the highest winds will be felt. storm surge of two to four feet. if we're going to see houses damaged and falling into the water, we go early throughout tomorrow morning. again, the snowfall totals, they look pretty certain. one to two feet, a wide section of maine, southern new hampshire, massachusetts, connecticut, rhode island with a possibility of a bulls eye of 24 to possibly 30 inches of snow. that's where it's historic. still, widespread all the way from buffalo down to philadelphia and new york city by the time we're all done. as far as the boston area goes, that's where we expect the worst to develop during the
. and bieber mania is alive and well here at 30 rock in new york city. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. the northeastern portion of the united states is still recovering from the devastation of sandy, and tonight the region is being hit by another powerful storm. the massive nor'easter could be one of the worst in history. well, you've got governors declaring states of emergency in new york, connecticut, and massachusetts, along with rhode island and maine. in boston, the city is the epicenter of two storms which could break boston's all-time snowstorm record of 27.6 inches. up and down the northeastern coast, between 1 and 3 feet of snow is expected to fall. forecasters warned of blizzard conditions including wind gusts of up to 75 miles per hour. this could cause widespread power outages this evening. the national guard was activated in states of connecticut, massachusetts, new york, of course to help with emergency management. the storm comes. ironically, almost 35 years to the day after the blizzard of 1978. the catastro
at all. >> thank you for the update on that. new york city may be the city that never sleeps. certainly quieter than usual today. a foot of snow on the ground in some parts. joining me now is stephanie abrams with a smile on her face. good morning to you, stephanie. what's it like there? >> alex, good morning. we're doing quite well in times square. the front page of "the new york post." nemo bites, snowstorm socks city. the plows have been going around. let me show you what the streets look like. a little snow, a little slush, but plowing and on the back end of the plow trucks, salt poured out behind them. a great job in times square. look at the sidewalks, totally fine. a lot of people know that li in new york, the mound of snow that they push to the sides of streets. snow is over for us, people should get their sleds, bundle up, very cold out here, feels like lower 20s, go to central park and have fun. >> that is you, certainly someone who knows how to have fun when time warrants. we are not seeing big, massive piles on the side. that's been a problem in some places, where has that s
>>> let me finish tonight with this. i was in a big city hospital recently and the issue of gun control, gun safety came up. if i wanted to know the impact of guns, they could show me, take me down and show me. gunshot wounds can be horrible. the need to try to do something about the proliferation of assault rifles, ammo magazines and the loopholes in the requirement that there be background checks. people told us of the horrible sight in newtown, connecticut. i don't want to be part of a movement to keep them flying into the hands of all sorts of people as they are today. the hoarders, the survivalists, the pair noud and the nutty. why? the next mass shooter could merge out of this. check the shooters of kennedy and ford. look at the man that shot kennedy and malcolm x. they had political motive rksz got guns easy and put them to use. write your congressman and say what you think and feel. do it tonight before you go to bed. the address of congress, for all the congressmen is u.s. congress, washington, d.c., 20515. that's washington, d.c., 20515. it will get there. that's "hard
forces moved on a government complex and a police academy near the northern city of aleppo. >>> meanwhile back here at home, officials on the state level are trying to prepare for those across the board spending cuts that are set to kick in friday. the se quest ration would slash $85 billion from the budget. president obama will meet with the nation's governors at the white house today after the administration rolled out new details over the weekend describing what impact the cuts will have all across the can country. effects include tens of thousands of jobs lost, fewer resources for education and the environment. some say that the white house is more interested in scaring people than finding a solution. >> senator coburn, is the president exaggerating the impact of these cuts? >> absolutely. it's a terrible way to cut spending. i don't disagree with that. but, to not cut 2.5% out of the total budget over a year where it's twice the size it was ten years ago, give me a break. >> for members of the president's cabinet however, the sequester means big changes in areas that can least afford
south of kansas city will get snow. this is coming off another blizzard that happened this past week. it's brutal that way. >> you can't call us both nerds. people are going to look at you and not believe it. i try to look cool here. >> we both have blue on. that works. yeah. cool. >> no. thanks, appreciate it. >>> let's turn to sports. the game of the night. kansas against iowa state picking up in the final seconds of the game. a chance to put iowa state up by three. missed. now, kansas needs a two to tie it. alie jeh johnson was standing his ground, right? they call him for the foul. he can't believe it. look at his feet. he wasn't moving. the end of the game, in the paint, near the line. it gave kansas another chance to hit the foul shot. overtime, they pull away. 108 to 96 avoiding the upset at iowa state. well now to the nfl. another reason to dislike tom brady. that's not what it says. giving the patriots a hometown discount. he agreed to a three-year, $27 million contract extension to keep him in new england through the 2017 season. by the end of that, he'll be 40. it's good news
intervention into education and focus on letting the states, the counties, the cities, the local school sites handle the education issues. what we're doing with federal intervention is not working. >> what's your thought? >> well, you know, certainly some of the things the federal government has done over the years haven't been all that successful. and the white house and many democrats in congress are trying to bring about a new approach. and part of what the president talked about in the state of the union is anew approach. but there are some things the federal government is better off doing than others. one of the things, frankly, i think would be a great role for the federal government in education is to help provide some of the resources for infrastructure, for building new schools. it doesn't get the federal government involved in curriculum, but rather in helping with deferred maintenance and helping to build these facilities. that doesn't interfere with that state federal role. but there is an important obligation here to try to help, particularly in those states that are really strug
. >> reporter: relief in the small community of midland city, alabama, following the dramatic rescue of a 5-year-old boy held captive for seven days in an underground bunker. late monday afternoon the words the tightly knit community had been waiting to hear. >> at 3:12 this afternoon, fbi agents safely recovered the child who has been held hostage for nearly a week. >> reporter: police say the boy was being held captive by this 65-year-old after dike boarded a stopped school bus last week, shot and killed driver charles poland and abducted the child. held for nearly a week in an underground bunker beneath dike's property, the fbi said negotiations deteriorated within the last 24 hours and that dike was observed holding a gun. >> at this point, fbi agents fearing the child was in imminent danger entered the bunker and rescued the child. >> reporter: nbc news learned a diversion airy device was used and the hostage rescue team endered through a door at the top of the bunker. >> it was by the grace of god, you know, he's okay. and that was the mission of every man and woman on this compound. >> re
. >> yeah. part of the problem is, number one, they lost the cities, including the urban city. they're losing urban white voters, and they're losing young voters and part of the problem is them. the messaging they use to gin up their base turns off obviously younger people, turns off women, turns off minorities. this time they really got minorities excited about voting. there was already loyalty to barack obama among african americans, but when you did that, that made that vote solidified, determined to come out as if it was 2008. >> this is the problem they have. the leadership, the michael gersons of the world, god bless them, as joe biden would say, are alienated from the people who support the party, the people who support the party. >> the angry guy out in arizona. >> the town hall meetings. i mean there's a reason why a lot more centrists or less yahoo republicans did not run for president last time. there was all the crazies and mitt romney, and if you saw the people turning out as we keep playing those clips from the republican debates, the audience was one that they don't c
is pulling away for the morning. storm completely over with. the catskills new york city area, done. maybe a few flurries, but no more accumulations. the back edge moving through the berkshires of massachusetts and through connecticut as we go through the morning hours, and by noon today, the snow should begin to shuttle off providence and boston, that's the timing. our friends in maine, it will be later than that. we're getting nailed, i-95 from new hampshire through portland, all the way up through augusta, that's where the blue band is setting up on the radar. white is the snow. where you see the blue, 2 to 3 inches of an hour. 18 inches of snow in many areas of maine. boston, looks like the heavy ban that was over you the last three hours, shifted to the south and east, probably over logan, but no longer over areas of the 495 loop. down over cape cod, have you yet to get very heavy snow, and winds howling out of the north. a very cold wind too. wait until i show you windchills and long island, 27-inch report on northern long island. one little last band over the top of you in central l
communications director jennifer. what new york city police commissioner ray kelly wants to hear tonight from the president about controlling gun violence. stay with us all day for coverage leading up to tonight's state of the union special. prime time coverage starting tonight at 8:00 p.m. humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? >> some are already reporting that we'll be subjected to another littany of left wing professionals with plenty of red meat for the president's base. i sure hope not. the campaign is over. and the fact is if the president plans to accomplish anything good for the country in the coming months he will have to go through a republican-controlled house. >> senator mitch mcconnell, of course, already giving a cold shoulder to the president even before he gets to capitol hill t
in and clean up dodge city. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. i'm live from atlanta. tonight's lead, republicans need a reality check on guns. they need to see the human face on tragedy. they need to see the horrible toll this violence and their policies are taking on our children. that's what the president was doing today. this afternoon, president obama took his fight for gun safety to his hometown of chicago. a city that's been torn apart by gun violence. in the crowd was mother of hadiya pendleton, the 15-year-old honor student who was shot and killed just a week after attending the inauguration. >> fortunately, what happened to hadiya is not unique. too many of our children are being taken away from us. two months ago, america mourned 26 innocent first graders and their educators in newtown. the overwhether he will ming majority of americans are asking for some common sense proposals to make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun. these proposals deserve a vote in congress. they deserve a vote. >> they des
rights act. two big city mayors from states that could be affected by any changes. >> good morning from birmingham, michigan. it's february 28th, 2013 and this is chuck todd. >> i think you are a spartans fan. i saw green. i hope i'm not wrong. the end of an era to the catholic church. unprecedented in modern times. we are counting down to a pope's retirement. the final hours as pontiff. he spent his last day meeting with cardinals and pledging unconditional obedience to his successor. the arch bishop of new york was in the room and described the meeting on the today show this morning. >> we catholics call him the holy father. the italians call him il papa. to see him fragile and having what i consider to be a remarkably humble and courageous decision, it was very moving and a tender moment. >> two hours from now he will leave the palace and board a white helicopter and makes the short trip to the papal retreat south of rome. at 8:00 p.m. local time, 2:00 p.m. our time, the pope will resign his office. the doors will be shut and the swiss guards will leave and benedict will begin life.
incredible stuff. the hardest forecast is the new york city because the temperatures are kind of borderline. it may start as snow, go over to rain, a little sleet and back over to snow late. that's why the snow totals for new york, i have them down to six to ten inches. if it's all snow, it could be as much as 14 inches in new york city. that's the big question mark. hartford's going to get nailed, also all the way to southern portions of new hampshire and portland, maine. i mentioned temperatures. notice it's 38 in philly, 34 in baltimore. that's why southwards i don't think you'll get much out of this at all. that's why d.c.'s not getting snow. look how cold it is in the new england area. this is how it plays out. again, the bottom line, the worst of the storm arrives after noon today. so if you're in northern jersey, new york city area, long island, connecticut, hudson valley all the way through eastern mass and rhode island, do not be on the roads after noon today. that's the most important message everyone needs to know because if you do that and you get stuck on the roads, it's going
